Statutory requirements to reduce CO2 from tail pipes and strong interest in global environmental protection drove the main goal of modern HSDI diesel engines towards low fuel consumption. Two of the main strands of the criteria for low fuel consumption of modern diesel engine development are down-sizing and down-speeding. Down-sizing is well known for movement of the engine operation area in the direction of higher-loads, and thus better thermal efficiency is available. But this may cause degraded vehicle dynamic performance because of reduced back up torque as well as increased NOx. The down-speeding method aims to move engine operation area to higher load and lower engine speed. By this method degraded vehicle dynamic performance can be minimized with tangible fuel economy benefits. This study analyzed the characteristics of down-speeding relating to engine operation conditions and the fuel economy effect broken down by sector during the NEDC. Engine friction work, thermal loss through exhaust gas, thermal loss through fuel leakage and coolant, intake and exhaust pumping loss were compared and analyzed through the vehicle test.
